How should cloth masks be cleaned? How often?
Cloth face coverings should be washed frequently, ideally after each use, or at least daily. Wash it by hand or in a washing machine after use. Hot water isn’t necessary but make sure you use detergent. Do not use cleaning products such as lysol, phenyl or alcohol. Masks used by patients/ caregivers/ close contacts during home care should be disinfected using ordinary bleach solution (5 %) or sodium solution (1%) and then disposed off by burning or deep burial.
